Large-scale initials look great on or around a bed.
The sly pride in personalization encourages us to consider monograms for many spaces, particularly private ones like bedrooms. There, the tradition of monogrammed linens — originally done by hand and still highly valued – has been expanded. An upholsterd headboard [top] like Horchow’s “Emporia” offers vibrant color with built-in patterning from the oversized letters. In time, a grand (large scale) monogram should prove less costly than embossing numerous sets of sheets and makes a bolder statement than, say, a blanket cover.
With a four-poster and other types of beds, the monogram can be stenciled right on the wall, thanks to Alphabet Garden Designs kits. This clever approach to making the room your own stands in for the headboard and has the bonus of working with every possible color scheme.
